Default Re: Paper Wasp

I'm not particularly fond of ball hornets either. When I was 12 or 14 years old I went squirrel hunting in the ridge across the valley from the Cumberland Mountain. One of those wild thunderstorms came thru. There was a driftmouth to the coal mines where we dug coal for the winter. I made a beeline for the opening & ducked my head to get in out of the rain. In my haste I didn't notice the big hornet nest hanging from the roof of the mine & butted it with my head. I still can't figure how five gallons of hornets could live in a two gallon nest. The mine was about 75 feet deep but I must have dug 200 tons of coal getting away from the hornets & that was in total darkness using my bare hands. …..;.;.Paul H
